oh, now I want more shoes... specifically those, luci, but in the pink and red. I can see me wearing them now and every single one of my friends and family going "oh dear god will you stop with the shoes". And now I've just found the two stores in london that sell them...

I'm going to be on bread and water for a month. bread and water.

Oh my god, bunny. I want them too!! I just bought this red dress at the thrift store - silk wrap-around, cap sleeves, very very very Eva Peron...those shoes would be perfect! I have such a thing for vintage and vintage-style shoes...

Mr.Luci tries to be so generous with me; I tell him how cute the shoes are and he tells me to buy them (with our joint account...which I can't contribute to...'cause I'm a student and poor and he is not...but he insists that it's OUR money and not just his and I can't wrap my head around that) but I just can't bring myself to spend that much on shoes.

I wanna though!! I need help justifying shoes to myself. Unless, maybe I don't NEED to justify shoes.

Also Fluevog. I lurve these.

Yes, those with the squirly embroidery, Mornington. Wow, those are cool boots, btw!

Bunny, i saw them on the site, the ones you mean. They're lovely.

I bought comfortable soles for two pairs of shoes i've had for years now. So glad i finally came round to do that, because i now have high heeled shoes which are actually comfortable!

Ah, Fluevog ... I covet these in pink and red. I'm not really a heels person (except for my very high green tweed pointy heels) but those are divine.

Sybarite, I LOVE Top Shop shoes! I have their lovely suede flats with trim in three different colours (black w/ metallic silver trim, blue w/ darker blue trim, red w/ red sequins) as they're so cute and comfy! Gotta love student discount.

Those shoes are fab, Mornington!!

Funny that you guys are talking about doc martens, i just bought a pair today. I wore doc martens mary janes for 8 years, and now i've worn them out completely.
The pair i bought now are very cute mary janes like shoes, but the strap is higher up the foot, across the ankle.

http://www.drmartens.com/

click on 'search footwear' then in the menu shown on 'women's' and then it's the 23rd shoe in the scroll bar below. I couldn't find a direct pic.

And i love the 'lip service' shoes by Fluevog, but there's no retailer over here that sells them....

I love those shoes mornington. I couldn't pull off the sequins with my wardrobe but I adore the mini-platform sole. Gorgeous.

My favourite pair of docs ever were in oxblood and by Red or Dead (RIP). They ruled and I wore them for years.

So I found my low-heeled, button-fasten shoes at Top Shop, in a nice darkish blue. Here's hoping they'll still be around at the weekend when I'll have money again...

I have 7 pairs of DrM's. :-) They used to be all I would wear. I'd love a pair of the silver ones with at least 10 holes, or some with that floral pattern they had out several years ago.

Those shoes are gorgeous, Mornington. Very classy.

I never did get those ones on ebay I wanted because I mistook the day the auction ended. I'm still going to keep checking to see if they come back up, though. Either way, I don't do too well with thong styles, so they would have been good sitting shoes.

docMs, zillahgirl? oooooh, silver - have you got a picture?

I have been known to be a Doc whore (I think living near the factory outlet used to help) - although I've stopped buying them now. I figure six pairs are enough. (I think six. there may be more lurking in a box somewhere)

I still love my painted ones with the eyes on them. They're like a treasured friend, even if I don't wear them too much (even after four years they still make my feet sore)

I'm with you on the fear of buying shoes over the internet luci - my feet aren't especially odd-shaped, but they're between sizes.

ok, I want http://www.kurtgeiger.com/invt/78546&bklist=icat,4,shop,womenmain,wasseen these babies in red. I have a leetle bit of a thing for Kurt Geiger/Carvella shoes; I think it's because my favourite favourite red heels were from there. Once I get my feet used to them again, they're my comfiest shoes - and if I didn't walk so much, I'd be in heels every day of the year.

I think I'm going to love this thread

I'm too poor for my shoe-lust. Plus, you know, my enormous high-arched hobbit feet don't take well to cute shoes. Which blows innumerable goats, since my fashion sense - like my spidey sense - is keen and tingling.

I was shopping for new sneakers today. I've been living in birkenstocks for weeks now and I can't take it anymore. Too much walking. However, as usual, the little purple saucony sneakers I wanted do not exist in my size. Or the equivalent man-size. In fact, I couldn't get one.damn.pair in a men's 9. Is that weird or what? Does this store merely service the hipster nymphs and pixies of NYU? Like I'm not feeling out of place enough, apparently I need to find the big fat foot store. I just need to find the bag to put over my head...*rummages in boxes*

*sigh* Okay, rant over.

I love browsing zappos.com...I'm so loathe to buy anything, though. My experience has been that nothing ever fits my feet comfortably. I don't think I've ever owned a consistently cozy pair of shoes in my life. So, while, yes, those heels are a 10.5 wide and awful cute, they probably still won't fit.

Blah - I'm sorry this is so negative! I'm a bit depressed! Yay shoes! If you have small feet and can wear the cute ones, wear them and be fierce!!!
